Midway has some ammo on sale, marked down significantly. They are offering 640 rounds of surplus 7.62X51 NATO , in the original can, for $376.40.
They also have steel cased, new production 8mm Mauser marked down, 280 rounds in boxes, in the can, for $149.44
I am not familiar with the manufacturer, and I'm sure this is not reloadable , but at $149.44 for 280 rounds, it's not all that bad.
Of course, this is not being offered with free shipping, so by the time you add that on the attractiveness of the offer may have faded significantly. I know I could probably find the same kind of ammo cheaper in bulk somewhere else, but I like just ordering it , getting it in the can, and setting it on the shelf.
Friends, don't forget Mothers Day is 8 May. You need something really special for the wife, something useful that she will truly treasure! If the vacuum cleaner you got for her last year bombed, here's a good idea!
Or if your supply of coin is a little light at the moment, there are some sweet deals on AR-15's to be had. For a discussion there of, see Why Wouldn't I? over at Commander Zero's.
Things in the outside world appear to be grim. I have little enthusiasm for any of the presidential candidates. None of them are men of gravitas. I don't think I'd buy a used car from a one of them (I am certainly including Shrillery in this.) I'm going to vote for Trump, if the Machiavellian RNC doesn't find some underhanded means of doing away with him, but with little hope or joy.
Yes, just staying up here on the mountain top is a good plan for today.
